School governors

School governors are skilled, motivated people who are committed to making an improvement in our schools.

Every school in Bedford Borough has its own governing body which is made up of staff from the school, parents and members of the public who are committed to serving the best interests of the school and contributing to the school's efforts in raising standards.

Learn what it means to be a governor through the Governors for Schools' governor stories.
